taxes

I sat down and looked over all the paperwork today. I make have to break down and seek professional help for the first time in my life.

If I read the Georgia Code correctly, I do not owe any state takes on my lump-sum retirement package that I took from Kerr-McGee. I hope to hell not, because the Feds withheld $45,000 and the state didn't withold a dime. If I end up owing the state of Georgia 6% of that wad of cash, I am in deep shit.

The new State Sales Tax deductions may look good on paper, but they aren't going to do me a damn bit of good. If I could take that AND my regular deductions, I might be a happy camper. But it's strickly either-or, and I'm better off going the old way.

I feel a severe fucking coming on. I'm going to plow through this shit myself and see what I end up with. If I don't like the results (and I suspect that I won't), I'm going to see a tax attorney. At first glance, I believe that I'm going to pay about $50,000 in taxes this year, and that doesn't include the ambush the state may have waiting for me. (And the $20,000 I paid in child support this year doesn't even enter the equation.)

That's not "taxation." That is pure-assed RAPE.

Don't feel like the Lone Ranger, I owe 7,200.00 to IRS and 2,700.00 to the state, and I don't work either. Sucks a big one, Cat.

Bend over, it hurts less that way. Although as a poor college student, I get most of my taxes back.

Go and let someone else do it for you. It's worth every penny not to have to deal with it yourself.

I just LOVE it when some politician says "we're working on getting the government to give some of THEIR money back to the people in tax cuts".

Costa Rica sound pretty good NOW, huh?

Has anyone noticed how many of our fellow citizens practice that vocation. They solemnly advocate new taxes, preening themselves on their financial responsibility. The new taxes are invariably to be paid by somenone else!

How dare such morons tell me they care more about people than I do? They can't even get their brains around the concept of property rights.
